PLASTIC SURGERY CLINIC
In todays world, looking and feeling good mean having a fit, well-proportioned body.
However to many people, this may seem like an unreachable goal. Sometimes even a strict diet or a disciplined exercise program cannot conquer stubborn areas of excess fat.
For those who seek a smoother or better-proportioned body contour, liposuction may be the answer.
Liposuction is a surgical procedure that removes deposits of excess fat from specific areas of the body, face and neck.
Liposuction can be used to slim the hips and thighs, flatten the abdomen, shape the calves and ankles or eliminate a double chin.
To perform liposuction, one or more small incisions are made near the area to be suctioned. Whenever possible, incisions are placed within the natural folds of the skin, so that they are inconspicuous.
Fat is removed by inserting a small, hollow tube, called a cannula, through these incisions. Tubing to a vacuum pressure unit connects the cannula. Guided by the surgeon, the suction device literally vacuums away the unwanted fat.
Liposuction is performed under a general anesthesia.
When surgery is completed you will be taken to a recovery area where you continue to be closely monitored.
A compressive dressing such as an elasticised bandage or specially designed garment may have been placed over the areas that were suctioned.
You should wear the garment for 3-4 weeks. It minimizes the swelling and helps to give better cosmetic results.
Staff of the clinic will take care of you until the healing process is complete.
